Diving trips are programs made for certified divers that want to explore and enjoy the best dive spots in the Berlengas Natural Reserve in Peniche!

In our dive center we do double dive trips (2 dives in different spots) at 9am, which means you should be at the dive center at least 30 minutes before. The surface interval is done in Berlenga Island where you can eat something, rest or even do a short walk. We return around 4pm.

Diving trips includes 12L tanks, weights and belt, dive guide, insurance, boat trips in our searibs fast boats, water and snack – we recommend that you bring an extra meal. At the end of the trip you can take a hot shower in our facilities. For equipment rental, 15L tanks and Nitrox please check the price list.
